  1. Heater temp

    Man's not hot
  2. 1.7sdi to PD130

    Haha it still matters if it's trade insurance as to what you are actually declaring. If your calling them up or using an app and registering the car on your policy as whats on the log book but it's got a different engine, that's still illegal, even with trade insurance. I've had my trade policy for a fair few years, I have to sell a min of 8 vehicles a year. All cars MUST be legally declared, there's no exceptions to a traders policy. If you crash, your in the same boat as everyone else if the details are wrong.
  3. Oil light flashing

    I'm not sure on the sensor but i would get the car scanned to see what faults come up too. There's usually people on the the fb selling pages that can give cars a scan. There's a chap near me who charges £15 and comes to your house and scans the car with his Snap On diagnostics.
  4. Lupo 20v Turbo

    Thats mint!!!
  5. Apart from the fading to the top of the rear spoiler, it was in incredible condition. They are really underrated cars tbh. I don't think anything will replace the lupo as the daily hack, it gets abused and just keeps on going.
  6. Nice lupo on gumtree

    Leaving stuff sitting for long periods of time outside in the elements is usually what causes most of the damage. If they are left in a dry garage its usually fine. I've done the garage bit for years and never had any issues, you just need to religiously start and move the car each week. It's when a car's left sitting outside that problems start. Most noticeably the interior as you cant leave the windows open a little to let it breath. You get stuff growing and making nests lol.
  7. Want to know how much I can sell my Lupo for ?

    They are all over the fb marketplace and start at 200 quid so going by the lack of info, I'd say £200
  8. Want to know how much I can sell my Lupo for ?

    This is like some of the sale adverts that are about. No text just a picture and price 😂
  9. Genuine SDI Oil Filters

    Tbf the savings to be had on these online sites makes it pretty hard to go and buy 100% genuine manufacturer items now, I used to about 10 years ago. They all sell top named stuff at a fraction of the price. I admit, my shed of a lupo gets the cheapest of cheapest I can get 😂, excluding oil.
  10. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    There's a guy near where i live with a gti with one of those Lupo plates. I'll see what it is, dunno if the cars got any famous history.
  11. Genuine SDI Oil Filters

    I read that as any genuine filter not just vw. Is £6 cheap for vw one then?
  12. Genuine SDI Oil Filters

    Euro car parts have them for £3.58 with free delivery lol
  13. Volkswagen scrappage scheme

    Aren't those UP mpg figures a load of crap anyway? I can't see how in the real world you can get anywhere near that with having to rag the life out of it to get anywhere. Yeah the tdi lupo's are miles better. Cheap as chips to run, cheap to buy. Who cares about stupid emissions. I would never buy a car looking at what it puts out. These tree huggers need to lighten up.
  14. Gear selection woes

    Can you adjust the gearstick throw/movement via the gear linkages in the engine bay? I'm sure you can adjust these. I've can on my Golf.
